Hi! My Name Is Annie/Annabelle

She follows both simple and complex commands. She will sit, lay down, roll over, stay, leave it, etc. I can also tell her "Go with Ben" and she will follow my son around. She has picked up things off the floor and handed them to me on command. She is very smart with a ton of personality. She is especially attentive to the needs of my 4 year old son, and has a good bond with him. She has never reacted to a child. However, she is anxious outside the home and on leash. When she encounters strangers, she initially will alert and bark loudly, begin to pull, and tear up against the leash. Her hair will raise on her shoulders. The few times she has managed to get off leash and ran up to a stranger, after the initial bad introduction, she immediately greets, wags tail, and wants pets. When she doesn't get off leash, she is difficult to redirect and takes a while to calm. She will whine while trying to calm. She is crate trained and sleeps at night in her bed inside a large plastic kennel, where she will go on command. Annie did not show this behavior towards strangers at KCCAC, and I worry it's an environmental factor associated with apartment lifestyle. She may not be suited to an apartment. She is a very loving dog, very food motivated, and follows commands well like the lab in her, yet always has an attitude about it like the schnauzer in her. She gives crazy amounts of side-eye, but also is a very happy dog. She has a sweeping tail, so unlike most labs she doesn't beat you with her tail when she wags it. I believe the only option at this time is to get her back in a shelter/foster environment where she can work on her social skills again.
